Key fob only works when up close.

Recommended Posts

As above really. It’s a plug in key from an LCI with no comfort access. Only works when about 2 metres away and does seem to be getting worse. Would this be the key or the antenna? 
thanks.

It’s a rechargeable battery but I’ve read that they can die off so I’ll start with that. Thanks.

That’s a shame your very brave if you opening the fob up and only got the one key will be squeaky bum time might be worth checking the diversity antenna out first see if you can see any problems dry joints etc

Mine was doing this, up to the point where I had to touch it on the high level brake light.

It was corrosion ect on the p.c.b for the diversity antenna.

There's a guide on here for this.
